5: Invigilators

Nowadays, invigilators can frustrate students to the extend of asking them to pay or there will be NO communication inside the examination hall. For instance some invigilators may asked you to pay some amount each to allow you share and communicate with each other BUT if you fail to pay automatically you will become NO 1 Suspect in the hall. They will try anything humanly possible to make you fail unless you know your Creator.

6: Coming Late

Yes, I will advice you all that will sitting for the 2016 Jamb to be in your Centre 1 hour before the examination start. Try as much as you can to be first student to be in your centre. Coming late to any examination will make you feel that you have lost it all. you will automatically dis-organize yourself .

7: Breakfast

Yes , we know that a hungry man is an Angry man. Do not use because you are going to write Jamb examination you will starve yourself . Before leaving in the morning please take something atleast one cup of coffee or tea with bread will be nice to hold you. Sometimes , your exam will even start later than planned.

8: Long Distance:

The possibility of a student living in Enugu to meet up with an examination that will start around 9.00am in Ebonyi state is just 40/100 because anything can happen. Some student will tell you i will meet up but along the line , they will be hooked up on the way. The question is:
What if the Car breaks down on the way( Which we don,t pray for)

What if you don,t locate your centre before the exam starts?
The only possible solution for this is just to be in the state/local/town/village where your centre is located a day before the examination date.It will help you a lot because if you fail to meet it automatically it will collaborate the reason NO 6:

9: Jamb Paper type:

Many students choose to change their Jamb paper during the examination. Let say your Jamb use of English paper type is TYPE A. Some student will quickly get EXPO from their colleagues without checking the expo Type. Be careful.
